in thread Using Modules

I downloaded the DBI module and used WINPKZIP to extract it into a folder in my perl dir. Now what? I seem to have PPM installed, but I can't find a ppd file for DBI. The docs say to copy the module into my perl directory, but I'm not sure what to copy to where. Man, I feel dumb!! Thanks for you help.

    RTFM ;-)

    You can browse the repositories and use set to tell PPM to look in the one you know has the module you want. Type help set at the PPM shell to learn about this.

      Sorry to be a pain. Thanks for your help.
